What A Character I’ve Become…

I have always wanted to be a character in a book. I think in reality it is every readers dream. Well, believe it or not it has happened, and in one of my favourite contemporary crime writers latest books too…


Yes that’s Simon Savidge, headteacher and local hero on the Falkland Isles, or Sharon Bolton’s version of them in her latest thriller (a standalone) Little Black Lies. Only could there be come to this Mr Savidge than meets the eye…


Could he be a suspect and murderer? I have no idea and am reading like a loon to try and find out! Not that I will tell you either way, you’ll have to get Little Black Lies when it comes out in July. I can say it’s a corker and is making me slightly obsessed with shipwrecks, something I never thought I would say. Anyway, I just had to share my excitement with you all!

    Congrats! I think I would find it rather creepy to find my full name in a book, but maybe that’s because my name is quite unusual.

  3. I look forward to it! And, thank you, for turning me on to this author all those podcasts ago.

  4. That’s hilarious, but I have to honestly say I’ve never wanted to be a character in a novel: I’d rather be writing it! 😉
